denver - The founder of an infamous group of white racists in American prisons was found dead in his cell.
Benjamin Davis of the '211 Crew' would have committed suicide, the New York Daily News writes.
The group grew big in the news in 2013 when one of the members embraced a prison director in Colorado Springs.
The 42-year-old Davis founded 211 Crew when he was in prison in Colorado in 1995. The reason was that a group of colored prisoners struck him a broken jaw. According to Davis's father, another black prisoner saved Benjamin's life.
211 was established to protect 'white' prisoners. At the peak, 211 Crew, named after the legal description of a robbery in America, had 300 members. They use Irish, Nazi and Viking characters.
In 2007, Benjamin Davis received another 108-year celestial charge for all crimes within the prison hours. Or, as a judge said, 'Mr. Davis, you will not find anything on the streets for the next fortnight forty five years,' the Denver Post quotes.
